Bio

Originally from Sawyer, Michigan, I was born and raised in Southwest Michigan my whole life. I grew up in a small community and participated in a lot of activities with my high school, River Valley Middle/High School. After high school, I graduated from Southwestern Michigan College and then from Central Michigan University. Fire up Chips! I have lived abroad in Queretaro, Mexico for one semester.

I love crafts. I enjoy taking an ordinary object and re-fashioning it in a different, useful way. I have made display racks out of picture frames and even reupholstered sitting chairs. Besides crafting I love the performing arts such as singing, dancing (which comes in handy when learning Hispanic cultural dances), and making artwork. I also highly enjoy cooking and baking; which is why I love watching the Food Network Channel. My husband and I also have a furbaby named Pepper (Potts). She is a Russian Blue mix and our resident bug hunter.
